Camera choices - My cameras
Released on: 2011-04-23

So in my previous post I listed out the basic ideas of choosing a camera. Now I'm going to show you some clips that I have made using the cameras that I have. Please bear in mind that these are now old cameras and that the quality I achieve come about in part from the quality of the camera, and part knowing how to use them working with their strengths and weaknesses. This is true with any tool.

All of this post is about the video performance of these cameras. I'll do a still camera review soon.

Cannon PowerShot A700

I currently have no footage from this camera online. I've had it since about 2006 and the resolution is very low.

6 Megapixel. A fantastic still photocamera for its time and price.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2

Note that ALL of the shots in this video are hand held with no specialist mounts or equipment. This camera does have very good image stabilisation, even with my broken, woobly lens.

Pros

Cons

And a quick demo of low light performance:

Samsung S1050

Note the glitches especially in the high motion parts of the video. This is from the camera, not post-production.

Pros

Cons

Kodak Zi8

Pros

Cons

Vivitar ???

Sorry, I don't have the model number on hand. I'll fill it in when I find the camera.

Pros

Cons

I used this camera for several months as an on board camera for my model planes before I eventually broke the LCD. Anyone who has seen my piloting skills will know this is an exellent performance from the camera:
